Who We Serve

As a comprehensive Community Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services Center, PATH offers a wide array of services and supports to meet the specific needs of those with behavioral health needs, substance abuse issues, and intellectual disabilities.

Our Mission: Helping Individuals Achieve A More Independent and Fulfilling Life

With a $50 million annual budget and over 600 staff positions, PATH has been a leading human services provider and employer in Northeast Philadelphia for 49 years, serving 4,200 children, adolescents, and adults each year through a comprehensive array of evidence-based clinical programs. The organization achieves the highest levels of accreditation, including a 5-Star Provider Rating by Philadelphia’s Managed Care entity, and receives additional recognition and awards related to its high-quality programs and accomplishments by staff.

As the Northeast continues to change and grow, so do the needs of the people who live there. PATH@1919 will enable PATH and its partners to provide services that meet the community’s evolving needs, complementing its existing clinical services with other services and providers in alignment with PATH’s mission of helping individuals lead more independent and fulfilling lives.

Board of Directors

PATH is governed by a Board of Directors whose members are all volunteers and most of whom live in or near Northeast Philadelphia. Our Board members are dedicated individuals, some of whom have family members with disabilities, including family members who have participated in PATH programs and others who have retired from the agency after 30 or more years, thus all being especially vested in the quality of PATH services.
